Clump-o-lump – Stuffed Animals With Exchangeable Parts

Clump-o-lump is a fantastic concept that allows children to create their own fantasy  animal by taking a series of stuffed animals apart and putting the different parts together as they wish.

The Clump-o-lump family is (at this point) a family of six stuffed animals – Tig-o the Tiger, Squid-o the Squid, Bee-o the Bee, Bird-o the Bird, Shark-o the Shark and Frog-o the Frog. All of which are made out of three parts connected by zippers. All parts are easily detached each other, allowing the children to exchange parts and assemble all sorts of funny looking creatures.

With a bunch of these animals one can make a very cool and long wormy creature, by putting a lot of middle parts together! Oh, and don’t you just love the fantastic spine detail visible in all the creatures when they are taken appart? I do!

Jellyface Designer Toy Pillows

I love designer toy pillows because they are practical, cool and so cuddly. Jellyface designs several collections of limited edition designer toys and several of them are pillow shaped.

All the toys from Jellyface have the same history. They are sea creatures who had to flea the ocean due to pollution, and are trying to find a home on dry land. They look cute, but might have a dark side…

Jellyface designer toys are 100% handmade in Italy.

Woodbees – Designer toys, collectors items and decoration for the kids room

Woodbees are colorful bees made out of wood – a product of a collaboration between the talented toy designer Pepe Hiller and the artist Lunabee (Sarah Miskelly).

Woodbees are handmade designer toys and limited edition collectors items. They’ll look amazing as decoration for the nursery, kids room or for the living room of playful adults of all ages.

Pepe Hillers has uploaded a series of inspiring images of how the Woodbees are made. A few of which can be seen in this article. Perhaps some of our readers will feel inspired to create something similar with their children after seeing these images.

 

Jason Freeny – Dissecting Mickey Mouse, Hello Kitty, Care Bare and Raving Rabbid

Ever wonder what the likes of Hello Kitty, Mickey Mouse, Care Bare and Raving Rabbid would look like inside if they were alive? Or had been…

Don’t know how Jason Freeny got the idea of dissecting toys and sculpting their bones and intestines, but turns out it’s not as disgusting as it might sound at first.

Freeny really makes the most wonderfully detailed and creative “reconstructions” of toys inner parts. I’m totally blown away by his creations and I’d love to own some of his works for sure.

Heres a bunch of examples of his dissecting work. Hello Kitty, Mickey Mouse, My Little Pony, Raving Rabbid, Care Bare and a Rubber Duck are amongst the lucky few who have now got their inners on display.

Superheroes Superpowers Poster

This is one awesome poster for the childrens room – or the office.

Ever in need of a superpower just look at the poster and pick a superhero. Need someone for a meeting who can read thoughts – you’ll need to call Saturn Girl. Or beating traffic using teleportation Blink, Nightcrawler, Spot or Gateway could be the solution here.

The poster was made by Pop Chart Lab and can be bought at their site for a mere $20.
